Betsy Mantell:

Hi Lisa, I’m hanging around with your brother Rob. He is a very close friend of ours. He’s was watching me knit, which he knows I do, and told me about you. Hope to meet you one day. (I was the reason he asked about Vogue Knitting Live NYC.)

Thanks Betsy, I look forward to seeing you there in January.

Hi Lisa — I have couple questions about your classes. Does one always have to come to the same day/time each week? I’m a freelancer so my schedule changes around a lot. Can one come to a class meeting more than once a week? I have a project I’ve been stuck/stalled on that I would like to get back on track with and finish pretty quickly. And – does one have to have bought the yarn from Strings to take the class? I’m currently working on a project from yarn from my stash and would hopefully bring that to a class, not start a new project right now.

Thanks for all your help!
